Humanismo secular (na medida do possível)

Depois de sofrerem oito anos de governo pelo “Stupid Party” os EUA preparam-se para mitigar a crise e emendar a mão no que fôr possível.

Obama nomeou Jane Lubchenco (segundo a AP "an Oregon State University professor specializing in overfishing and climate change) para dirigir a NOAA (a NASA dos oceanos), e três cientistas para dirigirem o White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. Segundo a AP:

Eric Lander, "who teaches at both MIT and Harvard, founded the Whitehead Institute-MIT Center for Genome Research in 1990, which became part of the Broad Institute in 2003."

John Holdren "is a former president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington who has pushed for more urgent action on global warming."

Harold Varmus, "who was a co-recipient of the Nobel Prize for his research on the causes of cancer, served as NIH director during the Clinton administration."

Nada mau, depois de oito anos a sermos governados por pastores evangélicos, loucos varridos a chefiarem gabinetes políticos e científicos. Lembram-se do Dr. Hager, o chefe da FDA que sodomizava a mulher contra a vontade dela?
